How the Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger Calculates?

Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger first picks up flow rates, and then inlet and outlet temperatures for two streams. Out of these six values, if one is not known, Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger calculates values based on other five. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger also asks for permissible pressure drop on two streams. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger then calculates LMTD and average temperatures of two streams. Based on these average temperatures, Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger asks for specific heat, viscocity and specific gravity of two streams. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger then asks to select NB of two pipes, pipe schedules, and length of double pipes. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger calculates cross sectional area of annulus and inner pipe. Stream with higher flow rate is placed where cross sectional area is higher. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger then asks for expected Higher and Lower value of Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient and value of dirt factor. Based on these, calculation is done.
Calculation of number of Double Pipes:
For Annulus: Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger calculates Mass Velocity for annulus by dividing annulus mass flow rate by annulus cross sectional area. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger then calculates equivalent diameter. Based on this Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger calcuates Reynold's number. Based on Reynold's number, Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger picks up value of jH for annulus automatically. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger then calculates Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient, ho for outer side of inner pipe.
For Inner Pipe: Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger calculates Mass Velocity for inner pipe by dividing inner pipe mass flow rate by inner pipe cross sectional area. Based on this Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger calcuates Reynold's number based on inner diameter of inner pipe. Based on Reynold's number, Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger picks up value of jH for inner pipe automatically. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger then calculates Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient, hi for inner side of inner pipe.
Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger then corrects the two values for viscocity of liquids at wall temperature. Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient is then calculated based on ho, hi and dirt factor. The heat transfer area required is calculated by dividing heat load by LMTD and value of Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger then picks up outer surface area of inner pipe per unit length. Dividing heat transfer area by area gives the number of Double Pipes required.
Calculation Pressure Drop:
For Annulus: Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger calculates Mass Velocity for annulus by dividing annulus mass flow rate by annulus cross sectional area. For pressure drop equivalent diameter is different. Based on this Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger calcuates Reynold's number. Based on Reynold's number, Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger picks up value of friction factor. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger then calculates density of liquid. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger calculates pressure drop due to friction. Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger then calculates pressure drop due to velocity of liquid. The sum of two gives Pressure Drop for Annulus.
For Inner Pipe: Based on Reynold's number calculated earlier, Design Program for Tubular Heat Exchanger picks up value of friction factor and calculates pressure drop.
If the two values are within limits, design is good. Otherwise new combination of NBs of two pipes is tried to get the result.
